There are many ways to test for free radical activity in the body. These include “dry blood” or oxidative tests, serum and urine tests. The key role in these tests is essentially to determine whether there are sufficient antioxidants in the body to counteract excessive free radical activity.
Serum or blood tests are usually invasive procedures and may also be expensive. It involves analyzing blood and dried blood. These tests determine if blood from an individual is affected by free radical activity.
Urine tests on the other hand measure presence of MDA, which is a product of free radical activity. It is more accurate (50x) than blood tests the results are often a lot quicker. Usually it is cheaper, non-invasive and can be done at the person’s leisure and in the comfort and privacy of his or her home.
